Imagine the following disasters: Drought causing water shortages; Flood engulfing a whole city; Destruction left after a hurricane’s wake; Climate change due to carbon emissions; land restructuring due to rising sea level - hence, Hawaii. In a time of environmental crisis, how do we live right now? I do not have a concrete plan on how I will live within the time of environmental crisis, but I will explore my options and opinions on the matter.
From acquired information, through media, articles, discussions, we are at a point in time where a crisis may happen more often than before, based on recordings of past disasters. As we are currently in an on-going crisis, climate change, there are not many things I can change to help dramatically in

Sure, I can make or purchase it fresh, but I will have to accommodate time to prepare it - or wait in some line versus conveniently purchasing bread that’s made with preservation in mind and having it ready within arm’s reach. The more I explore about bread, the more I believe my viewpoint is construed.

But, without some sort of government intervention to assist with the cost and a law to force everything to replace their current vehicle, I don’t see an immediate change that would occur in this section. I do partake in utilizing public transportation more often than before, but to drastically change the situation requires everyone to change out his or her vehicle to an electric vehicle. As an electric car has less ongoing emissions, if any, besides the production phase. The city may put out more public transportation that are environmental friendly, but at the moment, they are not convenient enough since it doesn’t take us close enough to where we need to be without spending at least double to triple the amount of time we would need if we had traveled in a car
